What's there to do in New York/ New Jersey in December? I'm going to Mahwah, NJ in December and am going to extend my stay through the weekend to check out the Big Apple ( never been ). Unfortunately for me there doesn't look to be any shows. What else is there to do besides the obvious?

If you go before December 15, you can see one of the four copies of the Magna Carta.

As we like to say, "this is the track that got the gravy train arollin'."

Yes, And if you go down to Fraunces you may as well stroll by the Seaport and see the Peking, then walk over to the Battery & Battery Park is a nice stroll.

And tons of stuff for nightlife, pick up one of the local free papers to find out where the live acts are. BB Kings is a great place for Blues.

JOTS, knowing your musical likes (to a degree), I know you'll like this spot:

Also, if around on a Monday night, check out Shayni Rae's Truckstop (she's Kevn Kinney's wife):

VERY interesting people tend to drop in and play....

so far believe it or not doesn't look like much while I'm there. Going to miss Dan BErn by a day or two. Could see Derek Trucks but not sure if I want to drive that far.

Of course, J, you could offer to buy all the Jets fans drinks after their victory over the PATS, who, by the way, SUCK, but this might get expensive.

We pulled if off this time J, without even having to communicate about it...that's a GROK for sure, eh?

i bet if you look hard enough you can find some live music that you find appealing, after all , it is NYC. maybe the Islanders are playing the Rangers!

Jots: The best advice I can give from prior experience is to get a Sunday New York Times for the Sunday before you arrive. The entertainment section will be filled with music related opportunities. If the train arrives at Grand Central, many concert destinations are within a 15-20 minute walk.

cool! Any idea what it's like to navigate the trains around there? I'm going to be around 30 miles from New York I believe. This guy I know says you can easily take a train into the city.

NJ Transit. Mahwah has its own train station.

Goes right into the city.

Jots,
Time Square of course! Plus, you must go down to the Village.
For the best frozen Margarita's go here :
